DreamWorks' TIME MACHINE has been bumped from its original Christmas Day release date. Now, the film will be hitting theaters on February 8th. The decision to do so was actually made on the day before the tragic events of Tuesday, September 11, though changes will still be made to the film as a result of the public's potential sensitivity to particular subjects. Specifically, VARIETY reports that a scene in the film depicts the moon falling apart with chunks of the celestial body crashing into New York. Those scenes will be recut. It wasn't really those concerns that forced the releaee change. Mark Christianson, one of D'Works top distribution honchos told the trade, "Things are so crowded in the holiday period that we felt we'd have a better chance elsewhere. This is a great movie that is going to do a lot of business, but we feel now that we have a better release slot." TIME MACHINE stars Guy Pearce as the film's inventor and time traveler. Simon Wells, the great grandson of H.G. Wells, directed the film.

Time travel gets boost in Simon Wells' 'Machine'

By Susan Wloszczyna, USA TODAY

Guy Pearce stars in Time Machine, remade by H.G. Wells' great-grandson.

You could say that Simon Wells was born to make The Time Machine. That's because the director is the great-grandson of author H.G. Wells, whose first novel was the 1895 sci-fi classic.

Says Wells, an animation veteran who makes his live-action debut with the Dec. 25 release, "I was fascinated by the idea of doing it as a movie, because it has remendous visual opportunities and spans a vast range of time."

Starring as the Victorian inventor, who zooms into the distant future and discovers that mankind has been divided into the gentle Eloi and the cannibalistic Morlocks, is Guy Pearce. The actor copes with a different sort of time travel in the current Memento, whose plot moves in reverse.

"The reason we cast Guy was Memento," Wells says. "He showed he could carry a film and be the continuing thread.

" The first attempt to bring Machine to the screen was George Pal's 1960 adventure. Wells includes several nods, including an appearance by Alan Young (Mr. Ed), whose character Filby is played by Mark Addy (The Full Monty) in the new film. Wells, however, has four decades of special effects to give today's audiences the sensation of joining Pearce on his trip. "We watch thousands of years flicker by."

Those attending the San Diego Comic-Con gathering of fantasy enthusiasts July 19-22 can visit the actual Time Machine. But don't expect it to take off. The prop weighs more than 7,000 pounds.
